On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing Committees,
we would like to cordially invite you to join us for

The 8th International Posture Symposium

“Posture and Gait in Research and Clinic”

which will be held in the Congress Centre of Slovak Academy of Sciences in Smolenice Castle, Slovak Republic, September 9th – 12th 2018. The tradition of posture symposiums in Smolenice Castle, Slovakia, started in 1971 as a second symposium of the International Society of Posturography established in 1969 (now the International Society of Posture and Gait Research).

A new series of posture symposiums in Smolenice Castle started in 1992 and 1994 with help of Thomas Mergner from Germany and continued in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2015. The 8th International Posture Symposium will be oriented on “Posture and Gait Control in Research and Clinic”.

The program of the symposium will include a keynote lecture and sessions on selected topics with mainly free oral presentations and some posters. This symposium is an opportunity for researchers, clinicians and scientists in the field of sports sciences. We hope to provide a place not only for  fruitful scientific discussions, but also for pleasurable social ambience and informality.

We invite you to participate in the exchange of ideas from various points of view of human posture and gait control. We are looking forward to welcome you in Smolenice Castle, Slovakia.

Yours sincerely,

Frantisek Hlavacka,

Chair of Organizing Committee
